The Gender Profile for the Rohingya Refugee Crisis Response in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh

Authors/editor(s): The Inter-sector Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group (GiHA WG)

The Gender Profile for the Rohingya Refugee Crisis Response in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh, was prepared by the Inter-sector Gender in Humanitarian Action Working Group (GiHA WG) in Cox’s Bazar, co-led by UN Women and UNHCR with technical support from inter-agency Gender Capacity Adviser (GENCAP). The GiHA WG is comprised of sector gender focal points and gender advisers engaged in the response from across NGOs, INGOs, Red Cross/Red Crescent Society, and the UN. The purpose of the gender profile is to present a summary context overview gender analysis as well as key gender-related information on key needs, issues, gaps, response actions taken and recommended further actions within all sectors, sub-sectors, inter-sector working groups and cross-cutting coordination to ensure gender-responsive humanitarian actions in this crisis response. The profile was endorsed by the Inter-Sector Coordination Group (ISCG) in Cox’s Bazar on 3 December 2017 and is intended to guide the integration of gender equality and gender mainstreaming across the humanitarian programme cycle of the ISCG.
